    There have been days when Kirsty Strain’s ME symptoms were so bad, she has been unable to get out of bed.

    But she is making up for those lost days now.

    Over the coming weeks, the actress will see the seeds of her creative endeavours come to fruition with a prolific run of work including a film she conceived, wrote, directed and stars in herself.

    The 37-year-old Glaswegian is best known for roles in BBC Scotland programmes such as comedy series Burnistoun and weekly drama River City.
